UNC vs. Western Carolina: How to watch

Here’s how you can check out the Tar Heels take on the Catamounts.

NCAA Football: Western Carolina at North Carolina Rob Kinnan-USA TODAY Sports

After weeks of losses, at last we have arrived at a game the Tar Heels should absolutely win. In the penultimate game of the season, UNC will host the Western Carolina Catamounts in Chapel Hill.

Not only is Western Carolina an FCS team, it’s an FCS team that UNC beat by over 50 points last season. Beyond that, they are an FCS team that comes into this game with a 3-7 record this season. This year’s Western team allowed 562 passing yards, and 736 total yards to Samford.

Last year, Nathan Elliott threw for four touchdowns in the win, so you would think that the Tar Heels should come out with their second W of the season. Of course, we have seen winnable games and winnable situations turned into losses at other points this season, so who knows.

If North Carolina does take an L in this game, it will mean that they are on a losing streak against all Direction + Carolina teams. That wouldn’t be fun, but would at least be an interesting fun fact.

If you’re not going to the game, it may be a little tough to find, so here’s where you can watch or listen to today’s game:

  • Time: 3:00 PM
